      Hello Laura_Jane. This dress is my own design so I do not have a pattern. It is really simple to make. For the waistband measure your waist at the smallest point and cut one long rectangle and add an extra 5/8 of an inch on to either end to allow for your seam allowance.Iron on fusable interfacing the same size to stiffen the waistband For the skirt part cut two long rectangles – the length should be whatever length you want plus 5/8 of an inch all round to allow for your seam allowances. The width I used was the measurement of twice the width of my hips. Cut the short edges of the rectangles at a slope so the top has a thinner width than the bottom. Gather material and sew on to the waistband. Sew on buttons and a zip and a hook and eye and voila!! Hope this helps you!
